I envision a collaboration where our lab ( Laboratory of Plant Molecular Physiology: LPMP) at the Centre of Biotechnology of Borj Cedria (CBBC, Tunisia) could set up farming trails, conduct experiments in the greenhouse/chambers, analyze agronomic and physiological parametres, carring out omic analysis - metabolomics and metagenomics, perform plant and soil microbiome analysis, soil parameters analysis, essential oils extraction, in vitro plant culture, perform outreach activities and stakeholders engagement
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
The Centre of Biotechnology of Borj-Cedria in Tunisia is undertaking specific research and consulting activities in the field of plant biotechnology. It has six laboratories and one technology platform unit performing research activities and technological development in plant biotechnology on several plants species using advanced omic tools (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics). It develops a multi-omic approach to characterize, exploit and improve the local genetic resources, establish sustainable crop production systems and valorize Mediterranean economic plants in order to understand mechanisms of tolerance to drought and salinity within a diversified international collaboration network. A particular importance is given to the interaction of plants with their beneficial microbiome. Furthermore, certain research activities related food quality and food safety are also being developed.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
